Updates from my side:

1. Saw I Hate Luv Storys today. Average, time pass movie. Nothing new. But enjoyed time with a great friend. :)

2. Saw two middle aged men arguing with the man selling food in the Interval Food counter. It was quite a loud argument, and at one point seemed that we would witness a free WWE Sample[okay not really]. I find it amazing how even grown up people start behaving so immaturely at times, just because they were getting a few minutes late for the movie.

3. Getting burned out from my summer training at Kolkata. Thankfully, it will be over soon.

4. Have almost completed Assassin's Creed 2, one of the few great games I have played recently. The last one was Batman: Arkham Asylum.

5. FIFA World Cup 2010 draws to a close. Final is tonight. Am supporting Netherlands though Spain look to be the favorites to hold the cup.

6. Have bought Simply Fly by Captain Gopinath. Simply amazing book. Also in line is Made in Japan by Akio Morita, and then The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell, followed by the Idea of Justice by Amartya Sen. Am booked. Phew!

7. CAT preparation going on well, though Quant is hurting me real bad. In my first real mock, I got 94 percentile[IMS Open SIMCAT 1]- With almost Zero preparation. Am confident of scoring 98+ in the future mocks. But I need to work harder in Quant.

8. Need to work on my Education research. Have to decide on my career goals and take a firm decision.

Thats it for now. Thanks to all of you who have taken the pains of going through my lengthy posts. Am immensely grateful. I hope I will keep entertaining[or boring] you in future as well. For now, Adios Amigos.

P.S.- I got Desperados 2. Its cowboy time, baby! Bang!

Tipping point is a great read though not as convincing as outliers, its more along the lines of freakonomics though a little less dramatic. btw u seem to be a voracious reader, keep it going, good books will never fail to enrich and excite u.

Hi Satwinder. While not wanting to sound intrusive, do you think its alright to pursue an MBA degree after engineering, given that in almost all cases, it obviates one's engineering education ?

@Prerna: Yet, you did comment.. :D

@Ajay: Thanks, and yep I am a very avid reader. Its an addiction.. :)

@Abhid-d: Thanks for going through my blog. Well since 90% of all top Bschool students are engineers, its quite obvious that in today's scenario every ABC Engineer wants to do an MBA. I would say that one should pursue an MBA only if he/she has a genuine interest in business, finance, etc. Else he will just waste his time and money. As for myself, I was never interested in engineering. Got into it due to peer pressure.

Satwinder, that was a frank and blunt answer. Quite appreciate that. Thanks.
